Ask Daniel #36: To Martin, D.I., Georgie, Camille, Jilver, Firas, Matt, Jade

Martin is out of a deep rabbit hole and sleeps better than ever! D.I has a question for Pexi – should he just spend 6 hours in bed and not care whether he sleeps or not? Georgie is sleeping 6 hours out of 7 in bed as opposed to 4-5 hours out of 10-12 in bed, can this improvement be real? Camille has realized she has insomnia because she can’t let go of sleep. How can she let go? Jilver has muscle aches, twitching and delusions, what’s going on? Firas is kept awake by thoughts of how sleep deprivation causes heart problems and diabetes. Matt asks how to tell fatigue from sleepiness. Jade has started using the tools from this channel and slept well for two nights, but then had a sleepless night. Is all progress lost?
